Panzer Dragoon is a Sega property with a bit of a cult following, and it was one of those franchises Sega seemed to more or less forget about since there hadn’t been a new installment since Panzer Dragoon Orta on the original XBox in 2002. However, Sega has kind of been on this trend of reviving their old, forgotten IPs with the recent release of Streets of Rage 4 and shortly before that Forever Entertainment S. A. and Megapixel Studio brought us the Panzer Dragoon: Remake, a remake of the very first Panzer Dragoon game, for the Nintendo Switch.
Panzer Dragoon released back in 1995 for the Sega Saturn, and Panzer Dragoon: Remake remains very faithful to the original. The most significant change the remake brings is, of course, the visuals. However, a new update released today (version 1.3) does bring some new content. This includes: Episode 0 (a new level), Super Weapon Mode, 60 FPS Performance mode, cheats, gyroscope controls, among other small improvements.
If you would like to read our review of Panzer Dragoon: Remake, check that out here. It’s worth noting that this update may very well address some of the criticisms we had on it’s original release.
